Child ‘hugs’ sculpture. Now parents may be stuck with $132,000 bill

Quote:
Two parents may be stuck with a $132,000 bill after their child damaged a sculpture inside the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas, according to KSHB.

The child’s mother, Sarah Goodman, said the incident happened during a wedding reception last month.

Surveillance video shows the child hug the sculpture, then seconds later, it fell.

Reason 1 kids shouldn't be allowed at wedding receptions. Also, watch your damn kid.

I call Bs. What is the sculpture made of? Foam? Plastic? Why put a step stool up to the sculpture if you don't want kids getting close to it?

This

If you are unable to mount a piece properly and securely in essentially a public setting, then you are a fool to display it if it is of high value. Who assigned the value ? A high value item should be insured, and the underwriter should have provisions for display of a piece with a genuine six figure value.

Seems silly to me

It didn’t appear to me the kid did anything extraordinary or with the intent to make it fall. If I were the parents I would countersue for neglect in securing the exhibit and potentially harming their kid. It looks like that is exactly what the mom is setting up with the “bad dreams” comment.

Btw, it’s funny people were so fast to throw the harambe mom under the bus. I know the circumstances are somewhat different, but people were pretty harsh about her.

"Somewhat" strikes me an understatement. I don't think I see similarities, though I might not remember the details correctly (and am too lazy to look them up/kills conversation).

I’m not sure what is too different. Both kids lacked supervision, although realistically you wouldn’t expect a kid to be able to easily climb into an ape pit or topple a sculpture exhibit.

If you look at the footage, it looks like the kid was fondling the bust. I see a future in politics.

Big difference b/w losing sight of your kid at a community center and having him damage a statue vs losing him at a zoo and having him fall in a gorilla exhibit.

Completely disavowing personal responsibility for a mistake, that does seem like something you would do.

Hey years ago, 25 to be exact, I wore one of those thingies, but it was to carry our cat. The neighbors dog broke her back and this was needed to be done for her recovery.

They both lost sight of the kids. Obviously the potential result is a big difference.

Not completely, but the culpability isn’t just one-sided.

Personally, I’d let my insurer (umbrella policy) fight with the other insurer.

Just curious pboy, you’d pay the $150k?

I’d get a lawyer if insurance wouldn’t cover it, but I wouldn’t countersue.

Why get a lawyer? Seems like you are disavowing your personal responsibility.

No, but I’d want to get someone to verify that 150k is a legitimate cost. I don’t know anything about statue maintenance, for all we know they could be handing over a completely fabricated bill.

I've logged hundreds of miles on the Buckeye Trail with whichever of my kids was the youngest at the time in a carrier on my back, looking over my shoulder. I'm an "old man" now, but I could still rip off your head and sh1t down your neck if you crossed me, wannabe muscle head. Be careful who you talk to if you carry your big attitude out into real life, little man.
